Here it was beautifully played; pathos without sentimentality, despair without mawkishness"

Extract of Review of the Vagina Monologues by A.N. Merle
'Getting to the nitty gritty, the monologues themselves were enthralling, poignant & so hilarious I cried. Stories transversed different cultures, ethnic groups and ages, from straight to lesbian. All rang true: a homeless woman, a sex worker [Helen Stirling]... and (her) hilarious portrayal of our array of sex moans including the Mountain Top and the Grace Slick.'
